Solar power has always been part of gardening from the first records of gardeners using large boulders to collect the suns heat during the day to even out the day and night temperatures for tender crops. This technique eventually moved on to what we see today as the walled garden were thick brick wall collects the suns heat during the day and release it at night to protect tender plants from frosts and to advance crops such as pears, apples and cherries.  Add a green house to the wall gardens wall and you create a very effective form of solar heating for crop such as grapes.

Today with the development of Photovoltaic (PV) modules generate electricity from sunlight. i.e solar panels its not just walled garden walls that can act as a place to collect solar power. Solar panels can installed on house roofs, garden sheds, and garage and other garden buildings roofs. Before installing solar panels get some expert advice from a roofing contractor such as Cambridge Roofing.

Solar PV systems are increasingly being specified for installation on housing projects. Simple to fit and easy to integrate into the build programme, the installation of solar PV panels to a house provides a visible statement, reliable energy generation, reduction of energy bills and a effective way to meet planning conditions or code for sustainable homes targets.

Photovoltaic (PV) modules generate electricity from sunlight. PV modules come in various forms and can be mounted on top of conventional roofing materials or integrated directly into the fabric of the building – using solar PV roof tiles or roof integration systems.
